Why are Triggered Alerts not getting deleted by a non-Owner User?

Path Finder

Hi,

We have the following scenario:

A User X mapped to Role A, creates a Scheduled Search that triggers an Alert 5 times in a Day. These are listed in the Triggered Alerts section, with Owner as User X. We have other Users Y and Z, also mapped to role A, who are able to view these Alerts in the Triggered Alerts section. These Users Y and Z are able to view results for these Alerts, they are able to edit the underlying scheduled search as well. But they are not able to Delete those Alerts. The Alerts can only be deleted by either the Owner X, or by a User mapped to admin Role.

We do not wish to give Users Y and Z an admin access, but we want them to be able to deleted these Alerts, as they are also mapped to the same Role A, as the User X.

Could someone please suggest what could be done in this scenario? We have tried assigning power role to Users Y and Z, but even that did not work.

When setting permissions to your alert, make sure that role A can Read and write the alert, by simply check the read and the write box in front of Role A.
Thanks

Read and Write both are checked for Role A. This just enables users Y and Z to be able to modify the underlying search. But not to delete the triggered alert.

Add the Admin_all_objects capability to the Role A on Settings--- Access control---Role ---Role A and click on adminallobjects at the left side of the Capabilities box, to make it appear at the ritht side, and save.

Assigning the adminallobjects capabilities enables the Users with Role A to be able to view some system settings, distributed settings, etc as well, which we don't want. As of now, assigning the Owner to 'nobody' for the scheduled searches has worked for me. Does having 'nobody' as Owner have any adverse impact?

There is no impact. It just Means that Every one and Admin can edit your scheduled searche.
